Spalding House Family Day

In conjunction with Bank of Hawaii Family Sunday, the museum also holds a free Family Day at its location in Makiki Heights, with entertainment and an art activity. A free shuttle bus will run between the Honolulu Museum of Art and Spalding House, so you can enjoy two different events in one day.

May 17: Hot Wheels

Prepare to get a little messy for this fun and groovy fabric craft. Kids make a tie-dye safety flag for their bikes. Parent participation is encouraged.

Looking ahead:

June 21: Home Grown
Visitors will make their own "home grown" seed starter pot with recycled paper towel rolls and newspaper. The small biodegradable pot will be filled with potting soil and a vegetable or herb seed or their choice. The pots can then be planted in the ground, a larger pot, or left to grow in the starter.

July 19: Surf's Up!
Cool surfboard design and sweet treats come together in this tasty project as visitors will decorate surfboard shaped cookies using colored icing.

August 16: Auguste, Rodin!
Visitors will try their hand at figure drawing (an important part of Rodin’s process) using a very untraditional and delicious drawing material—pudding!
